The last two month my focus switched from rock climbing to skiing due to the coverage of my beloved rocks with the powder, which came in perfectly timed intervals, and buried the thoughts of my climbing projects. So powder instead of rock was the program.

The past few years I couldn’t imagine making a longer break from climbing. This year it wasn’t that hard, maybe because of the long and very intense road trip and the incredible send of the ‘Balkonprojekt’ in autum. This winter I got addicted by the feeling of flying down a mountain in the finest powder and I wanted to have this feeling back as often as possible.

Back at the crags it was like ever or even better! Feeling the rock underneath the finger tips and enjoying every single movement made me remember why I love climbing so much. The trainings sessions showed some good results so I started the first day of the new year with a fast ascent of ‘Rocket Max’ and the first bouldering days with an ascent of ‘Pluto auf der Jagd’ at the winterly Maltatal.

LIFE IS BETTER WITH CLIMBING!
